New Billing Process Rolling Out

As we ramp up to transitioning to the new clubhouse we’re improving several of our internal systems. The first of those is our accounting and payment systems.

In the next week you will receive your latest account statement and a ACH/Credit Card Authorization form. Please validate the information and read the instructions very carefully. Beginning in August we will automatically charge your account for food, beverage, event, and membership charges.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Kevin Parker, General Manager.

Thank you to everyone without whom there would would not be a Westpoint Regatta, to the volunteers, the skippers and crews, and to the guests who joined us at the party.

Cruise-Out Calendar Update
from Shannon Amerman

Hello Cruisers, 

As we have had a couple of adjustments to the schedule, I just wanted to remind you of what we have planned for the next couple of months. Please mark your calendar with this info and I hope to see you.

  • Aug 25 to Sept 1: The Delta. One of my top 3 places to visit!
  • Sept 1 to 4: Sausalito (Schoonmaker)… Those that are in the Delta can stop here on the way home as it’s an easy stopover along the way, or if not in the Delta, please do come and join us for the Labor Day weekend.
  • Oct 20 to 22: Half Moon Bay

I’d love to get an informal “we’re planning to go” or “wish we could but can’t make it” email from you… so please, reply to me (no need to reply all) and just give me a sense if you are planning to join any of the above cruise outs. I will create sign-ups but would love to get a sense of the number of people planning to join. Mostly because planning a cruise out for 3 boats vs 15 boats is very different. 

Hope to see you out there! Last weekend in Ayala Cove at Angel Island was FANTASTIC. The winds up and back were perfect, lots of fun at the island, and we took dinghies over to Corinthian YC to visit with the crew of Hurrica and Ocean Queen as they participated in the Wood Boat Show. You missed a fun weekend with lots of boats (and classic cars)! 

Cheers, and looking forward to hearing from you.
